Paddington, now happily settled with the Brown family and a popular member of the local community, picks up a series of odd jobs to buy the perfect present for his Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday, only for the gift to be stolen.
Paddington 2 sees the return of the friendly bear Paddington with much of the first film’s cast returning as the Brown family and their neighbours while Paul King takes the director’s chair once again. What results is a fun family film that works even as Paddington is separated from the Brown’s for much of the film, opening doors to new story beats
